April 1, 2021, 12:30 - 1:30 PM
Join our key speakers, Alison Alexander and Jeffrey Wotherspoon, in an engaging, impactful webinar which is not to be missed.
As gangs, county lines and knife crime remain a widespread societal issue, our session explores the vulnerabilities and grooming young people in these situations are faced with, allowing a deeper understanding of this ongoing pandemic.
Whether you’re a professional, parent or carer, our immersive Virtual Reality programme allows you to step into the shoes of a young person, dissolving unconscious bias and permitting you to see these challenging situations unfold before your own eyes. Delve into the vulnerabilities and risk factors that draw young people into gangs, county lines and knife crime and the challenges involved with exiting those vices.
Antser Virtual Reality is being effectively used with professionals, parents and carers across health, education and children’s services to bring about rapid understanding of the root causes of the challenges faced by young people in these difficult situations. Our session will outline best practices and detail the assistance this innovative tool can provide to young people and those supporting them.
Join us to learn more about the applications and evidenced outcomes to date, and ultimately how Virtual Reality can transform outcomes for some of the community’s most vulnerable young people.

Understanding Domestic Abuse - Through The Lens of a Child
April 22, 2021, 12:00 - 1:00pm
Before the Covid-19 pandemic began, there were nearly 2.2m children in England living in households affected by domestic abuse, parental drug and alcohol dependency and severe parental mental health issues. As we exit another lockdown, we are now seeing a rise in reported cases, with domestic abuse highlighted as one of the most prevalent consequences of the pandemic.
To gain a deeper understanding of the impact of domestic abuse on the family, we must first understand the effects on the victim, how this can affect their parenting capacity, and how this is then perceived and experienced by the child.
Join us as we take a unique look through the eyes of a child in witnessing and experiencing domestic abuse, and learn how Antser’s innovative Virtual Reality tools are being used to increase empathy, create positive behaviour change and improve outcomes for children and families.

VR For Virtual Schools - An inspritational introduction to how Antser Virtual Reality can improve outcomes for children and young people
April 29, 2021, 4:30 - 5:30pm
Antser have developed the world’s first Virtual Reality (VR) experience for Children’s Services. The VR programme was originally designed by adopters, social workers, children in care and psychologists, with the sole purpose of changing the lives of families affected by the care system.
The Immersive story telling VR programme is now used within 48% of local authorities across the UK, as well as increasing numbers of partners in countries across the world.
It is now time for schools to fully realise the tremendous possibilities offered through this innovative technology, and this webinar will show you how!
Put simply we want to introduce the power of VR to increasing numbers of Virtual Schools in the UK. We will use this webinar to introduce the programme to you, and for you to listen first-hand to a Virtual Heads already using the films. You will also have the opportunity to see some of the films themselves, answering any of your questions at the end of our time together.
Using 360-degree immersive films and Virtual Reality headsets, the programme enables the viewer to experience life from the perspective of the child. It’s a unique approach offering a way to understand the impact of attachment and trauma, through the eyes of a child.
